Women of Letters
The curators of the popular Women of Letters events – Michaela McGuire and Marieke Hardy – have published a collection of letters. The letters have been penned by a host of personalities who have read at previous Women of Letters functions. Sally’s love letter to the song Halo is included among these. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to Edgar’s Mission animal rescue. Visit the Women of Letters website for more info.

Retailing at a special price, the new version also features the film clips for ‘Light All My Lights’, ‘Even Though I’m a Woman’ and ‘On My Own’. The album re-issue coincides with a series of performances by the girls in churches and cathedrals around the Australia for Heavenly Sounds.
Sally’s film clip for ‘Harmony To My Heart Beat’ can be seen on Blackberry Smartphones in stores all around the world. When you check out the phone, you can check out the clip! Below, Sally reminisces about making the ‘Harmony To My Heart Beat’ clip. Sally also shares some behind-the-scenes photos with you…
Shooting the clip for ‘Harmony To My Heart Beat’ was an incredibly fun ‘work’ day for me! Clip director Antoung Nguyen and I wanted the clip to feel relaxed and natural, so we pretty much hosted a real pool party. My friends Architecture In Helsinki, Jens Lekman, Jessica Venables and Tim Harvey all feature in the clip.
I played a short solo set on an old Rhodes piano, then it was time for swimming, cake and dancing! It was an amazing day, and I felt really lucky to be able to work with Moopjaw on making such a memorable film clip.
The full clip can be viewed here.
